PART I Castillo’s Victory in Peru Validated On July 28th, 2021, Pedro Castillo, son of illiterate Andean peasants will be inaugurated as President of Peru, celebrating the victory of his socialist party Perú Libre in the elections of June. Peru has strong historical ties to other regional powers, most notably Ecuador and Bolivia. Castillo’s victory... Read More
In A Man for All Seasons, Sir Thomas More rebukes another character who betrays him in return for a regional appointment. “It profits a man nothing to give his soul for the whole world, but for Wales?” In like manner, I ask what have we gained from importing the whole world? Thanks to mass immigration,... Read More
Earlier by Benjamin Villaroel: The War On Whites And White Heritage Has Arrived In Chile Crossposted from American Renaissance In the USA, the GOP’s share of the white vote is highest in states with the most blacks. Whites in northern states with few blacks, from the Pacific Northwest to New England, vote majority Democrat. But... Read More
The U.S. Regime Media Narrative is consolidating on an explanation for South Africa’s riots: “inequality.” This conveniently avoids the point, brilliantly made recently on Revolver.news, that modern South Africa is explicitly founded on proto-Critical Race Theory i.e. whites are to blame for everything; and the result is a Trumpian sh*thole [South Africa–The First Country Built...

Librazhd, 2021
I just had my best sleep in a long time. My dreams were elaborate, meaning my harried mind finally had a chance to iron out, at least partially, a few kinks. In one dream, I was asked to review some miserable literary text, with a few footnotes in French. As I fudged and botched this... Read More

Catherine and the Baroness The only character who actually dies in Disney’s Cruella is the sweet, good servant, Catherine, who consents to raise Cruella – condemned to death by her birth mother, the grotesquely unfeeling Baroness De Vil - as her own daughter. Cruella and the Baroness shall dance a burlesque that plays out to... Read More

Five years ago, I wrote a book called Waking Up From The American Dream. One of my assumptions was that America was uniquely destructive because the egalitarian virus was implicit in its founding. America wasn’t really a “proposition nation”; no nation is. However, it was at least plausible to believe that it was, that it... Read More
Penang, Malaysia, 2019
Last year in South Korea, I went into a fried chicken place and asked for half a bird. Misreading my hand gestures, the lady gave me a full one, but chopped up. It’s standard in South Korea to gorge on an entire chicken, while downing mugs of beer. Their BBQ restaurants also stuff you with... Read More
Guillaume Faye Prelude to War: Chronicle of the Coming Cataclysm Arktos, 2021. I discovered the writings of Guillaume Faye only after his death in 2019, when Arktos published a translation of Guerre civile raciale (A Racial Civil War). In the process of reading and reviewing that work, I wrestled with a writer whose style and... Read More
Graham, Oksana and their children in Kiev, 2021
You grew up in El Cerrito, just north of Berkeley, then attended Reed College in Portland. Reed was like a madhouse in the 60's. Then you went to Berkeley, before heading to Vietnam for four years, during the height of the war. Did you transform from a hippie to a gung-ho grunt? I was too... Read More
At the time of his death in 1962, modernist writer E. E. Cummings was the second most widely read poet in the United States after Robert Frost. William Carlos Williams ranked Cummings and Ezra Pound as “beyond doubt the two most distinguished” contemporary American poets. Pound titled his own global selection of poetry of various...

At 80-years-old, you’ve done and seen quite a lot, but you didn’t exactly have an auspicious beginning. You couldn’t even graduate from high school. What happened? I was expelled! I wasn’t much of a student anyway. I signed up for welding class and woodworking class, so I didn’t have to do any work, but in... Read More

I just interviewed an American who'd traveled for five years straight, but you have been outside the US for 18 years altogether. Why, first off, and how have you been able to sustain yourself? Was there no place you wanted to settle? Will you ever return to the US to live? I had always wanted... Read More

With my Escape from America series, I’ve interviewed American ex-pats who have settled in Mexico, the Philippines, Hungary, Costa Rica, Brazil or England, etc., but you’re constantly escaping from one country to the next, with the goal of experiencing all 180 of them! What made you choose such an unusual lifestyle, and how did you... Read More

Borges and Bioy-Casares created a detective who solved crimes from a jail cell. Don Isidro Parodi could help others, but not extricate himself from a false accusation. Removing themselves from the world, desert hermits were still sought out by those overwhelmed by day-to-day problems, whether financial, familial or perhaps even sexual. Nathaniel West’s Miss Lonelyhearts... Read More

Five weeks ago, it looked like war would break out in Europe. With up to 150,000 Russian troops massed on the Ukrainian border, The Saker concluded, “In my professional opinion, what I see is a joint preparation by the Ukronazis and the USA (along with the UK and Poland) to attack the Donbass and force...

One hypothesis about the Anglo-Saxon world is that Britain 1.0 has been superseded by Britain 2.0, such that the latter gets updated first, and the former always lags behind, under threat of being discontinued. As a consequence, the US fashions in race relations have late echoes in the UK. Here are two little stories about... Read More

I’m in a tiny Tirana café built around a eucalyptus tree. John Belushi, the Madonna and someone’s deceased grandma charm its wooden walls. I sip a macchiato to start my day. At the bar, an old man in an old suit orders a raki. It’s not quite nine, yet he’s downing a shot of five-alarm... Read More
Learning French with Alexandre Cormier-Denis
The Québécois are a unique people, for the most part descending from a relatively small founder-population hailing from various parts of France, creating a besieged nation of 8 million French-speakers surviving for centuries in an Anglophone sea. I recently learned of a new menace to Québécois survival: the French. Indeed, the Québécois nationalist Alexandre Cormier-Denis... Read More

Democrats prepare to eliminate opposition to woke culture
So what was preordained has finally taken place. Former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has now been convicted of the murder of George Floyd. While many, possibly even most, Americans would agree that Chauvin exceeded what was necessary in his use of force, the prosecution never proved that he intended to either kill or severely...

A Boots-on-the-Ground Report
I moved to Santiago, Chile during the Obama years: 2012, to be exact. I believed, as did many others, that the real financial reckoning was still to come, that race relations would worsen (bullseye there and then some!!), and that other countries were better prospects as havens for individual freedoms than a U.S. in decline....

Is Albania, believe it or not, for here, you can walk around, sit inside cafes, bars or restaurants, worship at a packed church or mosque, and travel by crowded buses between cities, etc. Though you’re supposed to wear a mask in public, most folks do so with their nose sticking out, because it’s hard to...

The Six Stages of Enlightenment
Anyone who has spent even a short time battling against the Judeocracy has surely experienced the frustration of attempting to persuade a trusted friend or colleague of the gravity of the situation—only to fail. This is undoubtedly one of the most discouraging and troubling aspects of those who take up the mission for truth and... Read More
A cyber army of nationalists have successfully shut down a network of feminists and American-style leftists on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter. More than a dozen prominent accounts belonging to purple haired women preaching homosexuality, hatred against men, and attacks on the traditional family were banned from the site for violating Weibo's policy on...

The Key to Macron’s Success...and Failures
In previous articles, we have seen how French pollster Jérôme Fourquet in his The French Archipelago has statistically documented the rise of social liberalism, the growing presence and character of Muslims, and the general decline of shared identity in France. Another crucial phenomenon is what Fourquet calls “the cultural, geographical, and ideological secession of the... Read More
There are six staging posts on the road to a kleptocracy – Britain is further down it than you might imagine
I used to meet businessmen in the Middle East who were in a state of high anxiety about their chances of winning a government contract. They were naturally reluctant to spell out the details, but they hinted that their chief worry was whether or not the official they had bribed to get them a contract... Read More
Whitey in the Woodpile: The eleven members of the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities
The Sacred Central Principle of Modern Western Politics and Culture
Two views on non-Whites are permitted in the modern West. The first view is leftist and rules the media, academia, law, education, government bureaucracy, big business, sports and all leftist parties. It states: “Non-Whites are a limitless blessing and whites are cruelly oppressing them.” The second view is cuckservative and states: “Non-Whites are a limitless... Read More

Or, the Accidental Biopolitics of the Culture Wars
Culture wars seem to be everywhere across the West these days. American politics has notoriously been plagued for decades by divisive conflicts over guns, abortion, and gay marriage (now replaced by the exotic trans phenomenon). Europe is also no stranger to such conflicts, whether within or between countries, though in the postwar era these appeared... Read More
Earlier, by Peter Brimelow: DUNKIRK: “People Should Be Hung From Lampposts, They Should Be Burned Alive, For What They’ve Done To Britain” Last week saw the publication in Britain of a report from something called the Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities. This commission was set up last year by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson,... Read More
An official UK report “Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities” has got into trouble by coming to the wrong conclusions. It has stated that the UK is not a racist state, and although there are instances of racism, in most ways the UK is a model of non-racism. The report says that the main source... Read More
Audrey Pulvar’s Racialist Move Is Backed by Left-Wing Parties and Media
The times they are a changin’. Just last week I wrote that “we are witnessing a racialization of French politics as increasingly colorful and woke youths reject the old generation’s quaint commitment to colorblind secularism as the bedrock of national identity.” The latest sign of this is provided by Audrey Pulvar, a prominent TV journalist...

As Francis Carr-Begbie pointed out long ago at the Occidental Observer, one cultural phenomenon is guaranteed to cause bafflement among liberals, libertarians and cuckservatives. It is the extraordinary spectacle of Muslims behaving like Muslims. Again and again members of Britain’s intellectual elite have been disturbed and dismayed to learn that Muslims don’t behave like Buddhists,... Read More
The ongoing political stalemate in Israel brings to mind an old recycled Jewish joke that reads as follows: Q: How many synagogues are needed in a village with one Jew? A: Two, one to go to and one to boycott! Self identified Jews, and especially non-religious one, are hardly defined by what they are but... Read More

Just this month, Kevin Barrett wrote about our cultural breakdown through the prism of Dostoevsky’s Demons. Also at Unz, Mike Whitney began his article about the Covid vaccines with a quotation from Milton’s Paradise Lost, “Which way I fly is hell; myself am hell; And in the lowest deep a lower deep, Still threat’ning to...

The Social Democratic government of Denmark has proposed limiting “the number of 'non-Western' residents in neighborhoods to up to 30 percent to 'reduce the risk of religious and cultural parallel societies'.” Basically this proposed measure would outlaw the formation of ethnic enclaves by putting a quota on how many non-Danish residents can live in a...

A review of For a European Awakening
In Europe today, it is easy to fall into permanent numbness amidst the omnipresent falsehoods, frivolousness, and slouching. That makes it all the more remarkable when one encounters some who resist, some who hold to an ethos, to the legacy of an entire civilization . . . an invigorating oasis in the most sterile spiritual...

The headline is from a Turkish government site: “French call to replace English with Latin as Europe’s official language.” When I read the headline, I laughed. I stopped laughing as I read the article. Yes, Latin should be the official language of the European Union. It’s an even better idea than that of Eric Zemmour... Read More
A Royal Family is a projective test: it is designed to be an emblem of a nation with which all citizens can identify. They need to see enough in that family to be able to imagine themselves being part of it. This family, by dint of some historical achievement, is chosen as the prime example... Read More
This is an extraordinary – and dangerous – five minutes of “mainstream” TV. It is five minutes of a black women’s rights activist trashing Piers Morgan to his face and on his own show, Good Morning Britain, as he tries to defend the Royal Family from the fallout of the Meghan and Harry interview. Shola... Read More
Israel's covid death doubled since it started its vaccination 'experiment.' 'Silent Birth' (leida ilemet) is now common in Israel. It refers to babies dying in the womb from Covid 19 or Covid related complications. In this interview with UKC's David Scott I look into the Israeli mass vaccination campaign, we discuss the most problematic issues... Read More
Oprah Winfrey’s interview with Meghan and Harry is a perfect case study of how an important political debate about the corrupting role of the monarchy on British life gets shunted aside yet again, not just by the endless Royal soap opera but by supposedly progressive identity politics. As so often, a focus on identity risks... Read More

So, we’re almost a year into the “New Normal” (a/k/a “pathologized totalitarianism”) and things are still looking … well, pretty totalitarian. Most of Western Europe is still in “lockdown,” or “under curfew,” or in some other state of “health emergency.” Police are fining and arresting people for “being outdoors without a valid reason.” Protest is...

PM Netanyahu announced on Sunday that Israel is set to “purchase or produce 36 million vaccines in the next year.” If you wonder why a nation of 9 million people that already gave half of its population two doses of the Pfizer vaccines needs 36 million vaccines, the answer is devastating: the mass vaccination campaign...

The Porn Industry as Jewish Anti-Fascist Activism & Cultural Terrorism
Following a series of instances in which porn websites were discovered to be hosting videos depicting the rapes of underage girls (in some cases the platforms refused to take the videos down), some 2 million have since signed a petition to take down a variety of porn sites and prosecute their executives for human trafficking...

As our world tumbles forth towards ever-more-previously-inconceivable levels of absurdity, you better learn to laugh or you’ll be crying all day. The latest example is the move by the French government to ban Generation Identity (GI), a civil society movement opposing immigration and defending native European culture. GI had just executed one of its trademark... Read More

Rush Limbaugh has died. Up until this morning, he was probably the most influential man alive. Despite his direct influence waning, he is a man who shaped an entire generation of conservative thought, for better and worse. He was an American icon, he was a genius, he was a sellout and a glutton who wasn’t... Read More
Nostalgic recollection of a missed friend
Today I am not posting an analysis, but a recollection of an episode of my past. I hope that you, dear readers, will not mind. If you do, let me know and this will be the last one. Anyway, this is how one night I met a quite remarkable officer who later became a good... Read More

The older you get, the more likely you are to ramble, or, to put it more delicately, to improvise quite freely, incoherently or repetitively, the more you’ll sound like Sun Ra on acid, in short. Warning label out of the way, I must talk about dogs, to start with. In Egypt, they’re everywhere, but nearly... Read More

Glenn Greenwald has Written the Defining Article of 2021
He might be a homosexual Jew, but Glenn Greenwald is a legend and a hero, and his recent piece ripping apart the hall monitor censorship beat of the mainstream media is the article of the year. Most importantly, it inspired me to write the funniest article of the year, “Suspicions of Racial Bias Abound After... Read More

In contrast to the situation in the Anglo-American world – where detailed racial data gives a good sense of most groups’ educational and socio-economic performance, criminality, voting patterns, etc. – there is no systematic collection of such data in France. This means that we have to estimate the general situation using proxy data, such as... Read More
